  Good morning Home School! 

Morning work

Use your purple pens to mark your work from yesterday. The answers are in the homework section of the website.

Get your journals and copy and complete as many questions as you can. Think about quick ways to work out the answers. You might need to use a different method for each question. Is multiplication commutative? (e.g. 4x2=2x4)


Black  - questions for everyone

Blue - Y2


Today we are going to be practicing another caterpillar letter. Which caterpillar letters have we practiced so far this week? This caterpillar letter has a tail. Can you guess what letter it is? Watch the video below.

Y1 practice the letter 'g' on the first page of your Handwriting Extra booklet.

Y2 go over the letter 'g' on your laminated letter formation sheet. Practice 'th' by completing the first 3 lines on the page headed 'Joining to th' in your Hnadwriting 5 booklet. If you have time you can complete the first handwriting patterns page.

Y1 & Y2 Listen to the song One Moment One People
1) Draw around your hand. 
2) Write inside the hand things you could do to make someone feel included. e.g. ask them to join in your game, smile at them, offer to help them, or anything else you can think of.
3) Decorate the hand and the space around it.
4) If you can, take a picture and send it to me.

 Y1 Maths

Use your purple pens to carefully and neatly mark your work from yesterday.

Watch the video below to find out what we are going to do today.

Get some real 1p, 2p and 5p coins. If you can't find any then make some. Draw small circles for 1p and 5p coins and a larger circle for 2p coins. Cut them out and make 6 of each type of coin. Now roll a dice. That is how much money you need to put into your pretend purse. Which coins will you use? Is there a different way to do it? Roll the dice again. You could play with someone else in your family. Can you both make the right amount of money using different coins?

Find and complete the next sheet in your Money Practice booklet. It should say 'Draw 5p in each purse'. You have to do it a different way each time. Use coins to have a go before you draw in the purses.

On the right hand side you will see 4 activities that you will be doing each day this week. Today click on the third activity ‘Learn the song - Zootime’
Choose 'verse - second half' and learn to sing the first half of the song. Can you remember the words without looking?


Look around your house or farm. I wonder how things have changed over the years. What did people do before we had televisions, computers, phones, washing machines, cars, electric or gas cookers? What can you find out? Try helping your family to cook dinner and imagine what it would have been like without your electric or gas cooker. Offer to hoover your bedroom. How would children have cleaned their bedroom without a hoover?

What would you invent to make things easier?

Other Things
What else are you doing at Home School? If you see a good idea then you could try it too.

Just back from a morning run!


A flag made by leaf bashing. What a great idea from Forest Schools.

Let's try some Yoga.
